With AWESOMeFEET you have to warm up to the idea that you will look like an idiot. Detroit resident Marty Stano, minimalist, filmmaker, oddball, makes a joyous video in celebration of winter.

Some may compare [Marty Stano] with early 2013’s darling Joanna Rohrback, creator of Prancercise, a comparison he enjoys.

“I saw it, I loved it,” he said.


Four and a half minutes of joy, edited from one 23 minute take.

He seems to have more joie de vivre than the Techno Viking.

Lots of empty lots.

True, but he hasn't got the same authority. Techno Viking would just frown and point at the sky and it would start snowing.

Not nearly minimalist enough

Downtown? Looks like a ghost town.

To be fair, he doesn't actually start in downtown. The downtown part is where there are other cars around.

I think I saw at least 5 cars.

For comparison, downtown traffic in a blizzard, Mitchell, South Dakota, pop. 15,000.

Despite his infectious joie de vivre, I can't watch the whole thing, so... does he fall on his ass in the slush at any point? I'm not just asking because that was pretty much the first thing I did this winter, but OK yes maybe I am.

He does not fall on his ass! Much to my surprise, because I certainly would. That whole thing made my feet cold, he had to be soaked in sweat and freezing.

But it's hard not to respect someone with so much happy in them.
